As soon as clementines are back in town, you know that winter has arrived. These sweet, sunny segments are the queens of the citrus fruit world, even if their far-flung Asian cousin – the yuzu – has made a bit of ground in the last few years. Highly fashionable in contemporary cooking, its zingy, fresh acidity makes it the perfect match for the clementine. This subtle pairing is the inspiration behind Maison Pierre Marcolini’s Macaron of the Month. One green shell and one orange provide a striking visual effect, before the taste buds take over to unlock the harmonious flavours inside: a fresh clementine white-chocolate ganache with a yuzu centre. The sugary and acid notes come together perfectly to reveal an intense, sweet sensation – this winter’s citrus fruit star!
